Open If You Dare!!


Sharing a Hallowe’en card I made today using these adorable images from 2CuteInk – Hallowe’en Animals Digital Stamp Set. Hallowe’en is one of my favourite times of the year when we get to see all of the little one’s all dressed up and having fun!

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 8.25″ x 3.25″. I die cut Stampin’ Up – Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper using my Couture Creations – Go Power and Emboss and Whimsy Stamps – Slimline Pillows Die – WSD473. This was used for the main background. I used the same die-cut again for the inserts, only this time I used Doodlebug Design Inc. – Ghost Town paper and also die-cut the sentiment. I glued the main background to the base and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord to ink around all of the outside edges and around each of the shapes. For the sentiment, I used my Blending brushes and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Twisted Citron to colour it and ink around the edges. Each of the shapes were glued and placed into their corresponding places.

The images and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and then printed out onto onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my printer and HP Printer High Quality Grayscale for the setting. This prevents them from smearing when colouring. My Brother Scan and Cut was used to die cut the images leaving a small white border. The images were coloured in with Copic markers and then popped up using 3M double-sided tape onto the card.

All Dressed Up!!


Sharing a card I made today using this adorable witch from All Dressed Up Digital Designs – Magical Day. This adorable little witch is all ready for Hallowe’en!

To make the card, I first imported the image and sentiment into Microsoft Word and printed them out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and die cut with Hero Arts – Infinity Die Ovals.

For the base card, I used Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. and cut it and scored it to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. On the left side, I used the following: Echo Park – I Love Halloween – Cut to the size of 5.5″ x 1.5″ and then I applied double-sided tape to the back and attached the spider Decorative Ribbon (07-3018478). Then, I used, double-sided tape and attached it directly to the base. I cut paper from the same paper pack to be 5.5″ x 2″ and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. I applied this to the right side of the card using double-sided tape. For the centre, I cut orange cardstock to the size of 5.5″ x 1″ and Craft Consortium – Happy Haunting paper, cut to the size of 5.5″ x .75″. I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin and then layered them using double-sided tape over top of the other 2 prints. I popped up the image over top of the background and added some Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots – Summer Dots and Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots – Polar Dots to finish off the card.

Free Broom Rides!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Free Broom Rides – TT017 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Wicked – FF052 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Wouldn’t you love to go on a magical broom for a ride? I know I would.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 5.5″. I cut the background paper from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pad to be the same size as the base and inked around the edges and onto the paper using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin and a Picket Fence – Blending Brush. I applied this directly to the base card using double-sided tape. Using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider dies, I die cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and orange cardstock. Using black cardstock I cut another piece to the size of 5.5″ x 1.25″. I applied this to the base using double-sided tape. I inked around the orange die cut with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the orange die cut and applied it to the base.

The image and sentiment were then stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with Copic markers. The sentiment was die cut with my Cuttlebug and Whimsy – Quick Strips Die Set dies. I inked around the edges and on top by first using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin with a Picket Fence – Blending Brush and then around the edges again, this time using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. To finish off the card, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them both up.

Frightfully Delightful!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Frankie – TT021 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Frightfully Delightful – FF054 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Frankie is all set for Hallowe’en this year with his little pumpkin full of candy. We used to use a pillow case when we were younger to get a lot more goodies when we went Trick or Treating. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with stamping the image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Brother Scan and Cut, I cut around the image leaving a small white border. I coloured in the image and then used Copic C0 to go around all of the edges. I fussy cut around the sentiment and applied Copic Y17 around the edges. I put this through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then applied it to some scrap yellow cardstock. Once again, I fussy cut around the sentiment.

Using my Cricut Explore, I die cut the Haunted House from the Holiday Cakes Cricut Cartridge and the Haunted Tree from the October 31 Cricut Cartridge. I decided to cut the second layer of the haunted house out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card rather than solid cardstock. This gave me the chance to colour in the windows, doors, shutters and moon the way I wanted to in order to make it more spooky with Copic Markers. The moon was coloured in with a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber and Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes. Using glue, I pieced everything together for the Haunted house.

My card was now ready to assemble. I started with a 6″ x 6″ base card made from AC Cardstock – White. I cut the bats background to the same size from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pack. I applied this directly to the base with double-sided tape. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke and a Picket Fence Studio Blender Brush I inked around all of the edges and across the top of the card to darken the sky a little bit. Next, I die cut the grass using my Cuttlebug, Lawn Fawn – Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper and Lawn Fawn – Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. I applied this directly to the bottom of the card using liquid glue. I applied glue to the haunted tree and haunted house and then applied both of them directly to background. Frankie and the sentiment were both popped up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Pumpkin Buddies!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Pumpkin Buddies – TT020 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Halloween Script – F232 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. These little Hallowe’en friends look like they’re getting ready to scare unsuspecting little ones this year. LOL!

To make my card this week, I began with die-cutting Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers for the main image and Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set for the sentiment. The image and sentiment were then stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto the die cuts. The image and grass were coloured in with Copic markers. The nose and eyes for the characters were coloured in using Sakura Glaze – Black Pen and Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. I stamped out the image a second time and used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut it out so that I could use it as a mask to put over the coloured image. I also die cut a 1.5″ circle out of Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper for the moon.

I placed the mask over top of the coloured image and the moon masked circle onto the large rectangle before I inked in the sky using various Tim Holtz inks listed below. I watched a video on YouTube by Glitter Grunge Greetings for inspiration on how to create my night sky. Once the sky was complete, I removed the mask for the moon and used the outside paper that I had cut the moon from to protect the sky while I inked in the texture for it using Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Hickory Smoke. I spritzed the moon and sky with some water. I removed all of the masks at this point and using double-sided tape, I applied the coloured image to my card base using The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours 4.25″ x 5.5″. Lastly, I applied some Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber to the outside edges of my sentiment and pop it up on the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Pumpkin Buddies – TT020 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Happy Halloween Script – F232 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide: Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Tumbled Glass, Hickory Smoke

Vampire Treat!!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a card using Vampire Treat – TT022 by High Hopes Rubber Stamps for the main image and Happy Halloween – H232 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. Hard to believe Hallowe’en is just around the corner.

To make my card this week, I began with a card base made from Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I die-cut the bat background paper from Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper pad using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Black Soot and then this piece was adhered directly to the base card using double-sided tape. The same dies were used to cut the orange cardstock and the edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin. Double-sided tape was added to the back of this piece and it was added directly to the bat background paper. Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card was die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and the sentiment shape was die cut with Whimsy Stamps – Quick Strips Die Set. Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide – Fossilized Amber was used to ink around the sentiment shape edges.

The image and sentiment were then stamped using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image with copic markers. I stamped out the image a second time and used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut it out so that I could use it as a mask to put over the coloured image. I also die cut a 1″ circle out of Inkadoo Stamping Mask Paper for the moon. I placed both masks onto the coloured image. I tore some masking tape in half vertically to create the grass pattern and then used the reverse to mask the grass while I did the sky. I saw this on a you-tube video and thought it was a cool technique. A mixture of Tim Holtz Ranger Distressed inks listed below were used to create the ground and sky. I removed all of the masks and then for the circle I used the reverse mask to section out just the circle centre and coloured in the moon with my Copic markers. To finish off the card, I applied 3M VHB – 2 sided tape to the back of the image and sentiment and popped them both up on the card.

Stamp: Vampire Treat – TT022 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Happy Halloween – H232 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

I Don’t Bite….Usually!!


Today I’m sharing  Vampire Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) image from the October release. This adorable little Gnome comes with 5 different sentiments. Two of them, I have used here. The others are “2020 Sucks”, “Bats About You” and “Don’t Let These Times Drain You”. I love this little gnome and with these fun sentiments, there are so many different cards that you can make.

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and coloured it in with Copic markers.  I added some Clear – Wink of Stella to the stars, moon and coloured squares on his hat and gown. The sentiments were printed out on orange cardstock. I cut them and then inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spiced Marmalade.

For the oval, I used Echo Park – I Love Halloween paper and die cut using my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. I also, used this paper on the top and bottom of my card. For the centre background, I used To Every Season – Stampin’ Up paper. I used some double-sided tape to join the top paper with stars to the haunted house background. Then I cut the background to 5.25″ x 4″ and inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. I also used the same ink to go around the edges of the oval.

To assemble the card, I began with an orange card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″ by using a pre-cut card by The Paper Studio – Primary Base Colours. The edges were all inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot. The background was adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image, sentiments and oval were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Recollections Bling Stickers were added as embellishments to finish off the card.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

I printed out the main image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my HP Printer. I used my Brother Scan and Cut to cut around the image and then fussy cut it in a few places. It was then coloured in with Copic markers. The sentiment was printed out on plain white cardstock and then I fussy cut around it, in order to spread it out. Then I ran it through my Xyron Create a Sticker and attached it to some black cardstock. Then I fussy cut around it again.

The backgrounds were die cut with my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. The printed background was then inked around all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin.

To assemble the card, I began with a white card base of 5.5″ x 4.25″. The 2 background pieces were adhered to the base using double-sided tape. The image and sentiment were both popped up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, some Kraftin’ Kimmie – Krafty Dots were added as embellishments.

Witchy Poo’s Happy Hallowe’en!!!


It’s Wednesday, and Sitting Witchy Poo from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) is back again to celebrate a Happy Hallowe’en and wondering what to do with all her candy.  My husband and I just LOVE Hallowe’en! We try to decorate our yard every year for the little ghosts and goblins who come to visit and we give out lots and lots of candy. Our front lawn gets turned into a grave yard for a day with spooky black cats, crows, skeletons, and more. On the porch we put out all of the animated little toys and of course the talking skeletons playing poker at the Bistro table. LOL! The children just love it and so do the parents! LOL!

To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and then coloured it with Copic Markers listed below. I fussy cut around Witchy Poo leaving just a little bit of white around the top of her body, but going directly to the line for the bottom of her. Flag Banner Dies from Craftin’ Desert Diva’s (restired) were used for the die cut and then the sentiment was stamped onto it. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin was applied around the edges to create a frame around the orange cardstock.

To create the background, Pebbles – Boo! paper was used. I wanted to add something a little extra so I pulled out my Kraftin’ Kimmie – Bats and Moons Stencil and applied Nuvo Glimmer Paste – Amethyst Purple! I just love the way it turned out. The bottom piece of cardstock was cut at 1″ x 5.5″. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot was used to go around all of the edges of the top and bottom piece.

Once everything was dry my card was ready to be assembled. I began with a standard white card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I mounted the coloured circles and bats cut at the same size directly on top of the base with 2-sided tape. I did the same with the candy on the very bottom. The image and the sentiment were both popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. Finally, to cover some of my paste boo-boos, I added in some candy corn from Dress My Craft – Dessert Mix.

Card Recipe:

Stamp: Sitting Witchy Poo – S151 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Sentiment: Happy Halloween – H232 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps)

Inks: Memento – Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Carved Pumpkin, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Black Soot

Stuffed with Love


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Angel Bear Scarecrow – T110 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Scarecrows Stuffed – H087 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. The turkey is hiding behind the angel bear for protection from becoming captured. He doesn’t want to become someone’s Thanksgiving Dinner. The crows are shrugging their shoulders, because they are just not sure what’s going to happen! Let’s hope this little angel bear can protect him. LOL!

To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card base, sized at 5.5″ x 5.5″. The base background was also cut at 5.5″ x 5.5″ using PhotoPlay – Mad 4 Plaid Fall paper. The added touches at the top and bottom are also from the same paper pad.

The main image was stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then die cut with My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies Layers. It was coloured in with Copic Markers and Sakura Glaze – Black pen was used for the eyes and nose. The layer behind the image was die cut from green cardstock using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The sentiment square was die cut using orange cardstock and My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out. The image and sentiment were popped up on top of the remaining layers with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and some Kraftin’ Kimmie Dots were added to finish the card off.

Happy Hallowe’en 2014


Halloween 2014 Front Halloween 2014 Inside

Hi There,

Here is my latest addition for a Hallowe’en card to the vet this year from “Boo” our black cat.

To make the card I used orange cardstock. I then layered the front with some paper from Doodlebug Design Inc. Hallowe’en Parade.

Used my Cuttlebug and Nesting circle cutting die to cut a hole through the front of the card. I used a smaller circle die and some yellow cardstock to make the moon on the inside of the card.

I used Mememto ink to stamp the pumpkin using a stamp from PKSC-09_September 2012. Then I used copic markers to colour and outline the stamp. For the face I used PKSC-22_October 2013.

Next I used just the face portion of the cat from PK-1333 Faceless Puppy and Faceless Kitten and the kitten face that also came with the stamp. Coloured in the stamp using Spectrum Noir markers.

The ghosts were made using PK-131 Happy Haunting Ghosts.

PK and PKSC are all stamps from Peach Keen Stamps.

Lastly, I added a few embellishments to finish off the card.

Happy Hallowe’en everyone!
